Midland College is receiving its second $349,480 Texas School Ready Grant from University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.

The grant focuses on professional development, coaching and mentoring for pre-k, Head Start and private child care teachers throughout West Texas.

“The goal of this program is to help children be better prepared for school.
Midland College received a similar grant in 2015, and we hire a coordinator to lead professional development activities for teachers in Midland, Odessa and rural West Texas communities.

Our goal is to continue those efforts with this additional funding” explains Denise McKown, MC department chair of Education and Child Care and Development.
